Oslo university rejects mass killer's application
OSLO (AP) - The University of Oslo says it has rejected convicted mass killer Anders Behring Breivik's application for admission to its political science program.
University rector Ole Petter Ottersen said in an email on Wednesday that the 34-year-old right-wing extremist has been informed "that his qualifications do not suffice for admission to the bachelor programme".
Breivik is serving a 21-year prison sentence, which can be extended when it expires, for killing 77 people in bomb and gun massacres two years ago.
His university application stirred a debate in Norway last week over whether someone convicted of such a horrific crime should even be considered for higher education.
